BEASTMILK premiere “Fear Your Mind” on Stereogum + other news

Nov 05 2013

beastmilk-fearIt’s been a complete whirlwind of activity since announcing the signing of Finland’s BEASTMILK a few weeks back. In short, we have never experienced so much excitement, anticipation, and critical excitement for any debut album in the history of the label.

Recently, we premiered “Fear Your Mind,” the second song premiere from the forthcoming Climax album, over at Stereogum. You can stream the entire song here.

Vocalist Kvohst shares the following insight into the theme of the song:

“Fear Your Mind” is about assassination fixation, our mass hybristophilia and the abstraction of the term “evil.” The title alludes to something we all need to face, ie our natural instincts, deepest fears and desires. The whole album is about how we face death and the end. Through murder we know ourselves and we learn to face ourselves. I am making a point about our social inability to accept that part of ourselves that is present in the Manson cult and killers like Pekka-Erik Auvinen. My mixing of dates and years there is meant to make the point that time is irrelevant. The victims and their families never forget, no matter how hard society tries to abstract the most heinous of crimes. They will always be recent on a personal level. Death is how we relate to History and how we place ourselves into that history. It’s how we learn to be human. These murders repeat themselves and will continue to repeat themselves for all time. We cannot escape who we are. We simply have to live with it and learn to live in fear of our own minds.

Additional BEASTMILK news to pass along:

• The band will be playing their record release show in Helsinki, Finland on December 5, 2013. Tickets can be purchased here.

Crave Online‘s Iann Robinson recently wrote an article/review on Climax, proclaiming:

Beastmilk has entered the battle for my top album of 2013 with a machete. An astonishing debut.

Q Magazine made “Love in a Cold World” one of “Five Songs to Hear This Week.”

AAA Music has also heaped extraordinary praise on the band with observations like:

This album proves to be a very relevant rallying-call that can cross the divide between music fans, allowing metal expression into the post-punk psyche. If Ian Curtis had not departed this world prematurely, this is what Joy Division may have developed into. If they had gone on past 1979 we would have seen a mastering of the dark vocal energies with instrumental intricacies in a more clear-sighted and robust package.

Gigslutz gushes:

Its eye-catching sound and taste is something that hasn’t been captured so specifically for a long time. It’s big, and it’s only going to get bigger.

Ripple Rock Radio Show declares Climax “album of the year.”

BEASTMILK has confirmed an April 10 appearance at Roadburn Festival in the Netherlands.

• The band recently performed at Live Evil, the festival curated by DARKTHRONE’s Fenriz. As some will recall, BEASTMILK was a recipient of Fenriz’s “Band of the Week” honor back in 2012.

• An amazing set of photos from a recent gig at Nasturi have been posted over at Death Illustrated.
